This new lakefront home on Lake Lanier included a private pool and spa for home use. Because of the infrastructure, concrete and water when filled, pools are heavy and impose a lot of weight on the soil under and surrounding them. This makes pools prone to sinking unless they have proper underground support. Without that support, the uneven settling, pressure and sinking can cause cracks, leaks and water quality issues over time. Land near bodies of water, such as lakes, rivers, ocean or streams, tends to be particularly soft and prone to settlement issues. Construction in these areas often needs the kind of extra support Cantsink’s patented helical piers provide to ensure lasting alignment despite soft soils and unpredictable weather conditions.
